Premeditated acts of self-love

For last week, J thought we could commit premeditated acts of self-love together. It was fun, and today couldn’t come fast enough, I couldn’t wait to swap stories with everyone.

Below is J’s proposal for each day of the week and how I applied said suggestions.

Monday: Indulge in at least one guilty pleasure. 
Sugar overload and junk food… I balanced it out by eating a huge salad for dinner though.
Tuesday: Express yourself. (Have fun with this one.)
This one will be a stand-alone post in the upcoming weeks.
Wednesday: Reward yourself.
Enjoyed a leisurely morning spent in my pajamas, wandering through the pages of “The Confessions of Catherine de Medici”, after having breakfast in bed.
Thursday: Take 15 minutes (or more) and wander (mentally or physically)
A friend of mine took me shopping with her. I rediscovered how much I dislike shopping. The drive there and back was so much fun though, I loved catching up with her and reminiscing. This evening ended up including both mentally and physically wandering.
Friday: Sip something delicious.
Wine – ‘nuff said. 
Saturday: PLAY.
Out of the blue, just because kind of a movie night with a friend. (I can totally add playing with the cats and bunny to the list too)
Sunday: Love someone – fearlessly, consciously, as only you can.
Not just someone, but more than one person. I love them – consciously, for no specific reason, as only I can and (almost) fearlessly even if it gets my heart broken in a million different ways.
Maybe someday I’ll share the whole list, but for now I’ll say the one I had to focus on most yesterday: figuring out how to say goodbye to a very fear friend of mine who is going back to the States after many month of having her in the same city as I am, just a phone call away and seeing her every week. I love her and will miss her so much!

How about you guys? Did you do any (or all) of the above throughout the week?

  1. Your week sounds so fun! My week was more twisted, so my wandering happened on different days, as well as loving someone fearlessly, but I think that made it even more fun. Glad you had such a great week!

    • Oh, my week was just as twisted I’m sure, with many of these things overlapping on different days (like eating ice-cream three days (and a lot of birthday cake!) which is another guilty pleasure, loving someone constantly, etc.) but I went with typing up something specific to the daily assignment for the list.
      It was a nice week, thanks for stopping by and telling me so!

  2. WOW! You rocked the self-love week! I have such a big smile! I love your salad save and your reward day! I want that. (In fact, the week is young. I can do it!)

    Big love to you, amazing one! Love, love, love this post!

    • Thanks, j! It makes me happy to read you have such a big smile after reading about my week.
      Oh, and the week is young, do it! I know you’ll rock that as amazingly as you are :)

      Lots of love to you too!

  3. That mental wandering sounds soooo good.
    :D
